  1. Hi all, my partner is an Australian citizen and I am preparing the documents needed for my De Facto Partner visa application. However, we do not have any evidence of joint bank account, tenancy agreements or any other joint financial commitments, as we have been quite financially independent during the course of living together. We lived together for a bit over 12 months and during this time, we had all our bills sent to the same address. The apartment that we rented was under his name as he first rented it before we even met, and I moved in after we started dating. My partner had to move back to OZ in Aug last year as his mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I am still in my home country. As such, we have been maintaining our relationship long distance via daily phone calls (Skype, Whatsapp) and monthly visits. I even stayed in OZ for a month last December to be with him. Evidence-wise, we have 4 statutory witnesses - his mom, cousin & mates, photographs, correspondences sent to one address, wedding invitation cards addressed to both of us, air tickets and our own statement of history and future plans. Did anyone here have the same experience, and if so what are my chances if I am not able to show financial commitments with my partner? Will the stated documents be sufficient? Thank you in advance for your advices, we really appreciate it.
  2. Hi all, I am looking for some pointers and advice on a Partner Visa application (de-facto). There is a question on providing evidence on joint finances / shared expenses; “Evidence will be required that you and your partner share financial commitments and responsibilities” (1127 Partner Migration booklet) . My partner and I have lived together for more than 12 months. Whilst in each other’s country we have had short term, temporary visas, so we’ve not had the opportunity or legal status (i.e. not residents) to obtain joint bank accounts, mortgages etc. What other documents could we provide? :unsure: Has anyone else had this issue, or a similar issue? Any suggestions on what can be provided? Thanks all.
